    I made my own sambal powder by grinding whole spices. I had all the rest of the ingredients as written. The dish came out bland. No matter how much salt I added I couldn't impart flavor into this dish. I feel like it should cook for hours in a crockpot to have any flavor. The recipe didn't have enough time to get flavor out of it. A big disappointment.

    I was so excited to finally try this recipe. We drove by an Indian Grocer coming back from the Farmer's Market. I walked in and asked if they had Curry leaves (they are so hard to find. Needed fenergreek too. Not only did the man have Curry leaves, they were FRESH!!!! And he GAVE THEM TO ME, NO CHARGE!!! This chicken is delicious! Just got through making the homemade Garam Masalla. So fragrant!

    I tried this recipe a few months ago, and it has now become a family staple. Everyone in my family, including my kids, loves this recipe. It is easy to make, and I use the sambar powder I get back from India. But you can use any store-bought sambar or rasam powder, or even some garam masala. It is a versatile recipe.
